It is not clear if this question is related to renaming of
the University of Energy and Natural Resources (UENR), Sunyani in the Bono
Region after the late Prime Minister of the Second Republic, Professor Kofi
Abrefa Busia.



In a post on his Facebook page, the former Multimedia
Journalist now in freelance asked “Obi ato Omanpanin aduro anaa?” to with is
the President under the spell of ‘Juju’ in twi.



He added “J.B. Danquah Republic of Ghana. Capital town,
Kyebi”



Since the president announced the decision by the governing
council to rename the university, there have been series of debates with
sections arguing that he should start new universities and name them after
these individuals if he is determined to honour them.



President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo at the 4th Congregation
of the University in Sunyani on Saturday , August 10, 2019 was quoted to have
said “Following the decision taken by the
University’s Council on August 3, 2018, the university will be named after one
of the illustrious sons of the region, Professor K.A Busia after the decision
had received Parliamentary approval “, he stated amidst applause.



This comes barely a month
after a proposal for the renaming of the Navrongo campus of the University for
Development Studies (UDS) after C. K. Tedam, the immediate past Chairman of the
Council of Elders of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) who passed on
recently.



At the beginning of this month, Parliament passed the University for Business and Integrated Development Studies Bill 2018. The Bill proposed the name of the institution as S.D. Dombo University of Business and Integrated Development Studies but members on the Majority side of Parliament disagreed.
